During the 2016 Junior Lifeguard Program registration process, you will select your desired Session (1 or 2) and class (AM or PM) according to the following four choices:

  • Session 1 (AM), Thursday, June 23 thru Wednesday, July 20 (no class July 4), 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
  • Session 1 (PM), June 23 thru Wednesday, July 20 (no class July 4), 1 to 4:30 p.m.

NOTE: Due to high demand, students may not register for more than one session during the summer.

The Program runs Monday through Friday. Throughout the program, we will visit several locations to become aware of the opportunities and hazards that exist along San Diego's coast.
